I was referred to We Care because I was experiencing blurry vision in both eyes, so much that I was unable to drive, which also left me unable to work. We Care staff immediately scheduled me to see an Ophthalmologist. I was told that both of my retinas were swelling and bleeding causing my vision to come and go. I am now receiving monthly injections and my vision is beginning to clear. I am finally able to drive and work again. If it were not for We Care, I would have gone blind. I am grateful for everyone’s help. God bless all of you, it is a wonderful thing you are doing here in Polk County!

We Care is a recipient of and is partially funded by Polk County's voter-approved 1/2 cent sales tax for indigent health care.
